You should not merely be concerned with hiring the right people, you should be obsessed. If you've ever hired someone only to realise later that it was a huge mistake, you know how expensive, time-consuming, productivity-sapping and growth-hindering it can be. On the flip side, bring the perfect person on board and your team will get more done, create a great culture and be one step closer to the success desired. 

Do an evaluation of the business and ask yourself "Where are we strong? Where are we weak?" If you know where you're weak you should be interviewing in those places anyway – before you have to let someone go. Waiting might cost you more time, money and anxiety than you need.
